[html5] How to test for cents currency symbol in javascript

I need to test for the cents currency symbol in my JavaScript program.

I have a variable with this value:


In my program I do this:

ax = (a[0][0] == '¢');

When my program run ax is False. But from the console it evaluates to True:

>>> a[0]
>>> ax
>>> a[0][0] == '¢'
>>> ax = (a[0][0] == '¢')
>>> ax

Can anyone explain this odd inconsistency and tell me how I can test
for the cents character?
